Specific learning outcomes:

By the end of this teaching unit, students are able to

  • describe and critically analyse the mechanical working of building structures as a driver of an efficient work of architecture.
  • assess the specific issues raised by the design of a structure so as to make sensible, coherent and rational choices.
  • assess the technical and construction principles to be developed for large scale structures; assess the methods and conditions of implementation.
  • analyse and make use of technical documents.
  • enter into a professional dialogue with an engineer using knowledge of structures rigorously : communicate an architectural project with the use of plans, presentations or other documents adapted with a view to posing questions about the project and developing it.

Contribution to the learning outcomes reference network:

Use the technical dimension

  • Be familiar with and interpret the main technical principles of construction
  • Be able to apply the various basic technical principles in producing a work of architecture

Make committed choices

  • Understand the merits of an idea which can lead to the objectives to be achieved by the project; follow through with determination, even by means of a modest intervention, the implementation of this idea and the achievement of these objectives
